Community Services

Our community services are for people with mental health problems who can be treated in the community. We offer a range of services.

Community Mental Health Team (CMHT)
As well as offering assessment, intervention and treatment for those who have serious mental health problems, the CMHTs also liaise with colleagues to provide support to service users that are diagnosed with both a severe mental illness and substance misuse. The teams consider the health, social and personal needs of each individual that is under the service

Mental Health Home Treatment Teams (MHHTTs) (formerly Crisis Resolution and Home Treatment Teams)
The Mental Health Home Treatment Teams (MHHTTs) (formerly Crisis Resolution Home Treatment Teams (CRHTs)) support service users in crisis and provide intensive community support. The MHHTTs are available 24 hours a day and are a point of access for urgent and emergency referrals. The teams are able to facilitate hospital admission and work with service users to prevent relapses, all in home or community settings.

Manchester Engagment Team

Manchester Engagement Team Service (MET) is a unique partnership between Manchester Mental Health and Social Care Trust and Manchester Mind, a voluntary sector organisation and registered charity.The Service is delivered as a dedicated strand of Manchester’s Community Mental Health Service and works specifically with people who have been involved with mental health services and who, for various reasons may find it difficult to engage.
